Fandom makes me Cranky!

To every fan everywhere in every fandom:  When you post a journal entry or reply,  please match your icon to your message fandom.  There are too many fandoms with characters of the same name, and I get SOOOOO confused!

One common example:   If you are posting about Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, don't use an SGA icon - It's the wrong John!!!

There are millions of icons out there for most every fandom.  Even if you have limited space on your journal account for icons, you could use a non-fandom related icon instead of the wrong icon!!!!!

I've tried the various methods supplied by the journal developers as a way to prevent fandom confusion, but it just isn't working right.  So rather than wait for the software to do what it's supposed to do, I'll rely on yelling at fans everywhere!    PLEASE DON"T MIX YOUR MESSAGES AND YOUR ICONS!!!!!

/end of rant - for now ;)

P.S. I hereby declare that no other fandom shall have a character named Blair.  Try it, and I'm sending BAMF!Jim to have a little discussion with you!

I feel your pain, but I hate to tell you that I've run into another Blair Waldorf, a girl character from Gossip Girl. I occasionally run into posts mentioning her and get so confused. *g*

But all the Johns, Jacks, and Jims do get confusing.

Oh, and there was a Jim Ellison on Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Personally, I spend aaaages agonising over which icon to use for a post - or comment, even. But I know that quite a few people user picture randomisers (a plugin for Firefox and maybe some other browsers) which select an icon at random for a post/comment so people don't have to think about which one to use. That might explain the unrelated icons, maybe.

Now you understand how i felt when you used that hewhoshallbenameless icon from BBC Sherlock on my SH09 centric beanie comm? **grin**

And maybe regarding your Blair only in TS edict (which I support by the way though I am no longer in the fandom)---ammend it to the only MALE character named Blair? It is a more common girls name, Blair Underwood the actor notwithstanding.
